Holograph

Title supplied by cataloger

These extracts are copies in the hand of Samuel May of Brown's original correspondence

These transcribed letters were written by John Brown of Osawatomie to his wife and family, from 1829-1859. Annotations by May are on pages 1, 15, and 18. The first annotation relates to the spelling in the letters, the second to Kansas border troubles, and the third to a company of slaves that Brown helped to escape from Missouri to Canada. The letters are devoted almost entirely to personal affairs and agricultural conditions
